    This SUMMER CAMP is an intensive musical theatre program where a group of approximately 45+ students, (divided into cohorts) ranging in age from 6 – 15 years old, put on a Broadway style musical with high caliber sets, props, costumes, a professional choreographer and director and a live band in just 1 WEEK!
    Professional pianist provided at rehearsals!  Each day will be filled with DAILY DRESS UP THEMES; singing/dancing/acting and even some self care elements too!  While fostering the love of musical theatre, we also encourage peace, balance and mindfulness for all, adding in our special Yoga Practice too!  We will enjoy the beautiful outdoors, while also rehearsing and producing our show inside.  We will enjoy exploring drama games, summer fun activities and many exciting fun filled team building exercises. 

    Each child gets their chance to shine, all campers get speaking solos, many have singing solos, all enjoy huge dance numbers, and beautiful costumes to wear on SHOW DAY!

    I like to say our specialty is bringing CHAOS and CALM together; to find harmony.   Whether you are young or old or somewhere in between – ha!  BALANCE is something we can all strive for! Come JOIN US ON WEDNESDAYS for a mid week Release after camp! 
    ADULTS & CAREGIVERS WELCOME to sign up too!   :)During our workshops we will explore Yoga thru the MAGIC of music,  essential oils, candles, sound bowls, vinyasa flow style, harmonium healing circle and mantras, celebrating nature and more.  NATURE reminds us that we are all connected.  Practicing Yoga gives us the opportunity to feel stable and secure inside and out, rooting down amongst the frenzy of life.  Like a tree, we must “Root Down to RISE UP!”   At HMT camp and during our Yoga Magic Yoga Workshops, we offer mindfulness practices, meditation and conscious breathing as some of the many ways to encourage our campers and students to connect with their inner fire (spark) and find balance and peace within. Sign up for YOGA MAGIC!

    Per the request of many parents & campers:  Campers are welcome to sign up for more than one camp per summer!  Maximum 2 camps per summer.  
    Please note that we perform the SAME MUSICAL all summer long so signing up for multiple camps is a bonus for perfecting your theatrical characters and becoming a leader!  Campers are cast in different roles each camp session they attend to give a new learning experience and more chances to explore their acting and singing talents!

    Many campers have enjoyed repeating camp.

    Each camp brings different opportunities!

    Camp is PACKED FULL of FUN:  We play drama games, summer themed activities, create props and paint set pieces for our show, write a personal bio for the program, sing and dance on stage, and produce a New York caliber Broadway style PERFORMANCE  in just 1 week!
